Sur l'album, Tavistock goosey fayre est présenté comme un traditionnel arrangé par Trevor Crozier. Or ce morceau humoristique de West country fut écrit par C. John Trythall et publié en 1912. Tony Rose l'a chanté en 1970 sur son premier album, Young Hunting. La chanson se termine en précisant que les protagonistes eurent à marcher 13 miles pour revenir de la foire aux oies de Tavistock. "So us had to traipse home thirteen mile from Tavistock Goosey Fair." Trevor racontait qu'il existait une version dans le Nord-Est de l'Angleterre présentant exactement les mêmes paroles sauf la fin.Là, on avait à accomplir 430 miles. "We had to traipse home four hundred and thirty miles..."

Producer Kevin Daly’s sleeve notes

“Giles Farnaby’s Dream Band make an entirely new medieval-electric sound. Formed by linking the medieval St George’s Canzona with the folk trio Broken Consort, the resulting band brings together early and present day instruments in imaginative and unique performances of some of the most tuneful and infectious music of all time.

“Most of the titles on this album are taken from ‘The English Dancing Master, published by John Playford, Britain’s first ever music publisher. The Tin Pan Alley of 1655 was situated near the Temple Church in London, and it was from a tiny shop near the church door that Playford’s publications were sold.

“The English Dancing Master or ‘Plaine and easie rules for the dancing of country dances, with the tune to each dance’ was first published in 1651, during the period of Oliver Cromwell’s Puritan Commonwealth. It was an austere time, with most of the old customs forbidden: dancing, profane singing, wakes, revels, ringing of bells, maypoles were all banned as dangerous to the security of the nation, and it seems a curious time to publish a collection of dance music. Playford’s own explanation was simple…’I publish this book lest the tunes be forgot’…

“The volume was immediately successful and went into several editions over the next twenty years (in fact it is still in print today). A possible reason for its popularity might have been that although Parliament abolished most forms of merry making, the Lord Protector himself seems to have enjoyed the occasional revel and given dancing a subdued show of approval…

“14th November 1657: ‘On Wednesday last was my Lord Protector’s daughter married to the Earl of Warwick’s grandson; and on Thursday was the wedding feast kept at Whitehall, where they had 48 violins, 50 trumpets and much mirthe with frolics, besides mixed dancing (a thing heretofore accounted profane) till five of the clock yesterday morning.’

“The first West End appearance of Giles Farnaby’s Dream Band.”


Sorti en février 2019, l'album Farewell He est un hommage à Trevor Crozier, un musicien plus grand que nature né à Southampton, qui a vécu et joué en Cornouailles, en Bretagne, à Poynton et qui est décédé tragiquement accident au Malawi. Trevor faisait partie de la scène scrumpy et western de Cornwall et était ami avec les Yetties et les Wurzels.
Trevor a travaillé avec plusieurs de nos poids lourds de la musique traditionnelle. Il a passé quelque temps à Poynton, où il s'est produit en duo avec Joe Beard (The Purple Gang).
Cet album est un hommage à la mémoire de cet homme et à ses nombreux amis et admirateurs qui ont aimablement fait don de morceaux. Maddy Prior, Mike Harding, Lea Nicholson et Naomi Randall, John The Fish, Liz Dyer, The Druids, Vic Gammon (qui faisait partie du groupe de Trevor Broken Consort), Paul James de Blowzabella, Shelley Rainey et Benny Graham sont tous ici présents. comme Joe Beard et Gerry Robinson (tous deux du groupe original Purple Gang). Epona MC Mike Billington fait également quelques apparitions.
24 pistes au total font de ce CD un bon rapport qualité-prix. (10 livres) Le lien : https://www.eponarecords.com/?product=farewell-he
